    I would love to know why the owner wants to sell it after just 600 miles?

    WHY ?????

    I'd guess a speculator, which is why I'd like to know how much it's going for. The dealer has to sell new cars for MRSP, but lightly used like this can attract a premium I believe. Tom Hartley has one and his is POA too.

    Not something I could easily do myself since even if it's halfway good I'm going to love it; as someone with rather a lot of insight said "you're just lying on the grass with your legs open aren't you?" Unpleasant image, but fairly accurate.

    You must be curious too Wazza.

    Kevin,

    Curious. Yes.

    I guess people have a right. Although it's not very nice for poeple on the waiting list.
    I have nothing against people flipping them out. It usually gives real enthusiats (those that don't want to wait on the list for months) a chance to own one now (even if they do have to pay a premium).
    These are the people who generally want the car for what it is and not just as a means to make a quick buck. They generally hold on to them for a very long time. And love them.

    ( A ferrari is for life not just for Christmas)

    I am more curious as to why they're selling.
    Did they find something wrong with the car?
    Did they not like it or what didn't they like?

    This sounds like paranoia, it's not.
    On new cars (especially exotics) it's often the ony way to find out if there is a fault with the car. The garage or manufacturer are not always inclined to give out this sort of information.

    Joe,
    If poss, speak to Wayne Olive @ Meridien. He's Sales Manager and actually an all right bloke for a car salesman! I bought 355 from him and a Porsche before that.

    I have also been advised to talk to Wayne at Meridiens...
    I went out there on a wet sunday and did not meet wayne, the chap I spoke to (who will remain nameless) wasn't really helpful at all, kept following me around (which I then turned into a bit of a game) and was clearly of the opinion that I was not a potential customer.
    Still I got my nice shiny red 360 elsewhere and am looking forward to re-enacting the Pretty Woman thing in true boyz stylee...
    LOL

    How does someone get two CS's ???? I dream about owning just one.

    Wonder what prices they will be in a few years ?
